Eleven rounds of the SB Nation Conference Re-Draft are in the books. Here's a look at the six conferences through round 11.
-- Twelve Pack: Purdue
-- Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants: Texas Tech
-- The Empire: Hawaii
-- Big East Coast Bias: Mississippi State
-- House of a Thousand Sanctions: Air Force
-- Red Cup Rebellion: Florida Atlantic
There was really no rhyme or reason to the programs selected in round 11. We saw one program selected from each of these conferences: the Big Ten, Big 12, WAC, SEC, Mountain West and Sun Belt.
The most curious selection of the round was Florida Atlantic, where the Cult of Les Miles could not resist the charm of the second best mustache in college football. FAU is also home to the best goatee in the college basketball, courtesy of Mike Jarvis. Perhaps Red Cup Rebellion just has a thing for awesome facial hair? Either that, or they just wanted to host the annual conference spring meetings in Boca Raton. Par-tay!
